‘Bone to Pick’ Kickstarter live!

The conclusion to Min’s saga is nearly here!

‘Bone to Pick’ Synopsis

Min only wants to put her ordeal at Frost behind her, but what if going public with what happened would protect the people she loves?

It’s been nearly a year since non-binary artist Min Lee’s harrowing last month working at Frost International, and she’s finally free of them.

Well… except for the fact that her best friend Henry is still in upper management at Frost HQ. Oh, and that her housemate and her housemate’s boyfriend still work for Frost. Furthermore, Min is anonymously contracting graphics to Frost Marketing so she can save up enough money to pay off her credit card debt and finally return to university to study fine art.

It seems that everywhere Min turns, she can’t get away from Frost. To make matters worse, one of the CEOs has it in for her best friend.

Henry’s friend and union lawyer Natalie Heiser proposes a solution: launch a lawsuit and public campaign against Frost for Min’s wrongful dismissal, promising that a successful outcome would mean a culture change at Frost and a better work environment for her friends. 

Even though Min is still figuring out the finer details of her non-binary identity, she’s comfortable enough with who she is now. But as comfortable as she is privately, is she ready to defend her complicated identity against the devious & handsome ‘True Blue Aussie’ CEO who’s in bed with most of Australia’s media?

Bone to Pick is the tense, dramatic conclusion to Min’s long journey of self-discovery, self-acceptance and living authentically.

I looked at my gold. “You don’t want this?” I asked her, and then theatrically shrugged. “Alright, I’m sure I can find someone else who’ll take a free bag of—”

She snatched it out of my hand, made a frustrated noise at me, and then stormed back inside her house and slammed the door right in my face.

I stood there for a moment with my nose to the wood and my eyebrows in my hairline. Hmm.

Beneath the Surface

Right before you die, everything becomes crystal clear. Perhaps that’s just adrenaline, but I believe it’s something else as well: perspective. Nothing puts life in perspective like death. Nothing else makes you realise what’s important to you, what’s wasted your time, and what you bitterly wish you’d spent more of your life doing. The ‘I’ll do it laters’, the ‘one days’: you realise immediately how you shouldn’t have put them off.

Of course, it’s too late now. You’re going to die.
